1. University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa- This flyover state may not come to mind as a top booze guzzling school, but the fact is, this campus knows how to throw down, and aren’t afraid to show it. Coming in at number 2 last year Iowa was not to be defeated this year, and crushed the competition with partying skills.

2. University of California, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, California- As we all know, the beach and booze mix to be one of the best cocktails imaginable. Put this on a college campus, and you are sure to have a ragefest like no other. With the tan girls and buff guys constantly strutting around, it is hard to imagine this place is anything but legendary.

3. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois- You might scratch your head at this one, but this itch is too severe to ignore. Illinois has been quiet about their partying, until now. They have unleashed the beast in recent years, and coming in at number 3 is well deserved. High school students across the country might as well head here if they want an unforgettable 4 or 5 or 6 years. Partying hard might as well be a degree here, and everyone seems to major in it.


4. West Virginia University, Morgantown W. Virgina- WVU loses it’s top spot from last year, but doesn’t fall too far, as the students here just would not allow that to happen. If you want a wild time, the 30,000 plus students here will show you to get down and dirty, daily.


5. Syracuse University, Syracuse, N.Y.- The people in orange are not messing around when it comes to throwing epic parties and drinking more than Landfill in Beerfest. With nonstop partying, it is very normal to see empty beer and liquor bottles floating around on a Tuesday afternoon
